I tried, I really did...

This keeps happening. Probably will have to go with Amazon on this one. :pensive:

So they had four Haruhi books, but not 憂鬱?

Yeah. I was very sad, especially since the other four were in the 100 yen section, too. :man_shrugging:

Cool beans, thanks!

Hi, lately I’ve been into reading Japanese novels but those that have been translated into English. I passed N3, failed by 4 point in N2, do you think I can read Convenience Store Woman or The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya? Thanks!

I’d recommend checking out the sample pages here and here to see for yourself. Personally, I’m finding Convenience Store Women to be a good difficultly level, while The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is somewhat challenging.

Yay! Someone else who watched switched! I saw the erased anime so I don’t know if I’d be as engaged with the drama. But If you know of any other drama that’s good liked switched or at least better than good morning call please tell me. :sob:

Sorry this reply is so late, but did you watch it? lmk know what you think when you do. And thank god someone else notices it. I googled why are japanese dramas so bad, are japanese people just bad actors and the the answers were like “no they’re not that racist ect,” and I was just like…okay then just not my culture I guess.

I’m gonna check them out.

Hey guys I have a concept drawn up for a kind of gamified advanced book club and would like to know if there’s any interest. Advance Book Club with gamification Concept

I’m also thinking of jumping in on conceive store women, let me get myself together and see. But I def want to watch the anime of haruhi so I’ll be skipping that one.

My favourite… it’s old, but I love it: 蛍の光. It has about 3 years between the first and second seasons. If you’re going to only watch a bit of it, the first season is excellent! But the other season was worth it, too. And there’s also an OAV that I think I missed…
Ever been to d-addicts ? It’s a huge drama wiki, for Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese, and other dramas. GREAT resource.

The children actors were fantastic in Erased.

It’s possibly a little old, but 一リットルの涙 is very good. Gokusen is also good.

Miss Sherlock?
